Doing Business Overseas

React And Adapt

June 27, 2011, Medellin, Colombia: The U.S. economy is stalled and will continue sluggish for years; however, over the long term, U.S. stocks look attractive.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"I join the pessimists," writes Retirement Planning Guru Paul Terhorst. "I have little faith that the United States can turn things around. I predict a sluggish U.S. economy for years to come.


Global Immigration Services

We Don't Have To Like It

Offshore Banking In Uruguay

How Uruguay Stacks Up

June 22, 2011, Montevideo, Uruguay: Uruguay remains one of the world’s top retirement and offshore havens.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I visited Uruguay for the first time 26 years ago at the tender age of 22. I was just starting out covering this live and invest overseas beat and had, frankly, no idea what I was doing.

Readers Say

"I have to say that you seem to dig deeper into the feel of a particular place and to do comparative analysis between alternative places. Your approach is more sophisticated and thoughtful and therefore more useful than that of other information sources covering these same subjects."

— John W., United States
"Thank you for all your hard work. You have made a lot of people dream and a lot of dreams come true. I enjoy all the e-mails from all your staff living all over the world. I am always telling people about you and how you started your publications years ago. In fact, I just today told my banker about how honest and smart you are, letting us know where to go. Wish I had listened to you more years ago..."

— Marlene M., Alaska
